first of all, as always many thanks to Allin and Jack for the new
release! Gretl continues to get better and better at what I still
consider to be a remarkable pace.
One interface-related example of that is the text-area-splitting
in some windows that was recently introduced. It got me thinking
about some aspects of gretl's general interface -- sometimes I
have too many gretl windows floating around for my taste. It
gets confusing and switching to the one I want sometimes takes a
while because I have to flip through so many others.
In current CVS I've begun to address this:
* The main window now has a menu item named "Windows" which
presents a list of open gretl windows, with icons in some cases to
provide an easy visual fix on what's open. I'm not sure whether
this should be a sub-item of the "View" menu, or a top-level menu
in its own right. For now I've made it the latter. Any thoughts?
* The right-click popup menus for most gretl windows now have an
item "Main window", which lets you get back there in case the main
window is buried -- and once you're there you have access to the
new window listing.
